Any Chance MX Or Am Will Start IAD Before Oct.?

Wed Mar 16, 2005 2:44 am

Several times during the past months it has been mentioned that (i) AM has applied for authority to fly MEX-IAD non-stop; and (ii) MX is interested in flying to BWI and/or IAD soon.

Does anybody know for sure if we will see a new MEX-IAD route opened by either carrier before October, 2005?

Dude,

I just checked the OAG schedules (CD-ROM database) for now through Oct. and did not see any flights by either AM or MX for the two cities (including BWI). The only service is a daily by UA using a 320 from MEX to IAD.

Hope it helps

Gerardo

I know Gerardo, thanks a lot. I was hoping that someone had heard any latest news regarding D.C. as a new destination of any of the 2 airlines. I hope these rumors materialize soon!

Last fall, AeroMexico applied to fly to Detroit and Washington Dulles, while Mexicana applied to fly to Charlotte and Fresno. We are still waiting on those new routes, becuase, IIRC, they were all approved.

AM and MX usually get approved for any fly they ask for. Both of them have been approved to service other destinations that have a market. I don't know if its the lack of aircraft, or they want to think about it a little bit more. IAD, CLT, PHL, and DTW should have direct MEX service.

IAD, CLT and DTW have direct, non-stop service to MEX with UA, US and NW, respectively. But yes, I agree there should be room for more than one carrier in each of these routes. With the exception of DTW, none of these airports is a hub of the partners of the Mexican carriers (DL, CO & NW for AM, and AA for MX) so maybe that's what's holding them.
